16 pitted dates

9 slices of bacon

2-3oz goat cheese depending on how cheesy you want to make these. 

16 marcona almonds


Heat the oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Slice the dates lengthwise but not all the way through so that they can be easily stuffed. If the pits are still inside, remove them. 

Take your bacon strips and cut them in half. 

Place an almond and a small bit of goat cheese inside of the date and push closed. Once it's closed, wrap it with one of the cut pieces of bacon so that they bacon overlaps on the bottom. 

Place the bacon wrapped dates on the baking sheet and cook at 400 for about 10 minutes or until the bacon is nice and crispy! Let cool for 5 minutes and enjoy warm!
